  • lice are becoming very resistant to the products on the market. treat the hair with product, then comb out very carefully with provided combto remove the eggs ttached to the base of the hair near the scalp . the chemicals do not kill the eggs which can hatch in about 7-10 days. wash all bedding including pillows with hot soapy water, spray mattress with lice spray. put all stuffed animals in a trash bag spray with lie spray on seal off for 72 hours. spray down couches and car seats if cloth. do not retreat for 7 days, chemicals can be very harsh on the hair and scalp. if otc products do not work talk to you dr there are rx products available, but try otc first .
